Happy!

Loved the princess castle nearly as much as my little girl 🐭x

Love the Maileg mice

I bought the big sister mouse to match the Christmas sister mouse I bought my new daughter last year. They are wonderful and I can’t wait till she can play with the Mam and dad and big brother mouse when she is a bit older :)
